Have you tried the NEW Gmail Interface yet ???
As you can see, I've taken the plunge and I love it.
Just click on the Settings cog and select it in at the top of the pull down menu.
As you can also see, if you don't like it, just select GO Back. I don't intend to. :)

My laptop has no led indicators. The following program changed all of that.

Advantages of addLEDs:

Replaces or supplements information LEDs which are missing or not clearly visible in an informative way
Provides a software option for the state change of the “Lock” keys
Short sound signal when there is a state change of “Lock”
Autostart operating mode
Several display modes
Doesn’t require installation
Compatible with Windows 7/8/10
Free to use
I opted to only use the Network and Disk Drive activity led's.

Chrome Site Isolation, offered in Chrome started in v67
Chrome will load each website in its own process. So, even if a site bypasses the same-origin policy,
the extra security will help stop the site from stealing your data from another website. Learn more about site isolation.
Site Isolation separates a site's render process from others which improves security and provides mitigation
against Spectre-class vulnerabilities like the recently discovered Spectre 1.1 and 1.2.

On your computer, open Chrome.
In the address bar at the top, enter chrome://flags/#enable-site-per-process and press Enter.
Next to "Strict site isolation," click Enable.
If you don't see "Strict site isolation," update Chrome.
Click Relaunch now.
It will increase the resources used by Chrome by approximately 10%.
You need to weigh the security increase against the slight loss in speed of the browser.
